Try the steps below:

 

1 Connect your BlackBerry to the Desktop Manager

While the desktop manager is running, connect your BlackBerry to the PC using the USB.  You should see an error message stating "No applications configured for synchronization" if you haven't already set anything to sync

 

2 - Set up which parts of Outlook to sync

Okay clicking okay (and entering your password if one exists), click Synchronize.  Now click synchronization under the configuration tab and then select Synchronization. 

 

If you a password exists on your device, you may be asked to input it once again.  For this example, I will choose Contacts only, but you also have the option to the calendar, memo pad and tasks.  Keep in mind you can choose to sync with Yahoo! as well.  For Google, you would need to use Google Sync.  

Check off the radio for Address Book and you will be asked to from the available desktop applications.  Highlight Outlook and then select "Next" 

 

The next screen is where you can choose 'Two Way Sync' / 'One Way Sync from the BlackBerry to Outlook' / 'One Way Sync from Outlook to the BlackBerry.'  I usually choose Two sync as it will merge data from both your device and Outlook (safest option). 

 

After you choose, hit Next.  On this screen, you would select the Outlook profile you'd like to sync, majority of us only have Outlook, but some may have business contacts and personal contacts in which they don't mix.  After choosing your profile, hit Next and then click Finish after getting to the Congratulations screen.  You can choose to sync more items or click OK if you're done. 

 

3- Synchronizing your data

I usually unplug my berry at the main screen in Desktop Manager for five (5) seconds and then plug it back up.  You will then be asked for your password if one exists

You will now see the synchronization screen bring up a new screen if there are any changes to be made with your Address book, Calendar, Memo pad or Tasks.  You can choose to Accept or Decline the changes

 

After your synchronization is done, you can check both Outlook and BlackBerry for the changes.  Once you see the additions/deletions, you have successfully set your BlackBerry up to Sync.

I am not really getting past step 1, because it begins to synch.

But when I try to confiqure the synch with Outlook addresses, it tells me synch not possible because it is set up for wireless synch....if that is the problem how do I disable the wireless synch.

help....I am ready to mail the phone back if I can't get it to synch...I had no problem with my BB Pearl before

You can go to Options > Advanced options > Enterprise Options.  Once you are in there, hold down the 'Alt" key + cnfg, then you should be able to see the wireless sync options in there, just change it to No.

Try these steps:
1. Connect your Blackberry Storm  via USB to your PC, and Open Desktop Manager on your PC.

2. Open up Backup/Restore > Advanced.

3. On Advanced you should see two windows, on the right you should see the databases currently on your handheld device.
4.Now, re-sync the contacts from Outlook.
Or:
  • First you'll want to make a CSV file with your address book contacts. Here is how you do it--when you're in Outlook, click File> Import and Export. You will be shown the Import and Export Wizard screen in Outlook. Select "Export to a file" and then click "Next."

     

  • 2

    You will then be asked how you want to export the file. Select "Comma Separated Values" (in other words, as CSV file) and click Next.

     

  • 3

    In the next window, select the contact folders that you want to import. Click "Next," then "Browse." In this next window, choose where you want to save the file. Click okay and you now have a CSV file saved where you directed the program to save it to.

     

  • 4

    Now here is how you get the CSV file to your BlackBerry. You'll first want to connect to your BlackBerry Internet Service web site. Log into your account and you'll be on the main screen.

     

  • 5

    Click the "Address Book" link, then click Import> Browse. Find the file on your computer, the CSV file you saved, select it, click open> add. Your BlackBerry Internet Service address book will now have your entire Outlook Address Book installed.
